    Good deal causey and Welcome to BBOS.
    I guess you were just being sarcastic with your earlier post. I kinda had to do a double take on that. So forgive me. Anyhow, I've had no luck as well.
    Thanks for chiming in causey. See ya around the Forum.

    One question Acme....Are you CDMA or GSM network? IDK so I need to ask.

    yes, was ment sarcastically...both to the idiot part, and to the fact the "we are sorry, your call can not be completed as dialed" hasnt changed since phones became common place.

    the only thing i can suggest is try *228, as that seems to be the default for all CDMA carriers, and just listen to what the prompts say, assuming there are any. You will want to do both options (only 2 default on Verizon), one updates roming, and sets you up with the closest cell towers, the other does some other updates to the phone.

    Well done causey.
    Again welcome to BBOS and please feel free to jump in when ever you can around the forum. Maybe you would care to post up in the new member thread. That's a good place to introduce yourself if your interested. If not, no sweat.

    Tried the *228. Got the dreaded recording saying 'Your call could not be completed as dialed...'
    Thanks for all the help.

    My suggestion if you're having service issues on your Bell Mobility phone is to contact them via *611 on your phone. If I remember correctly, they can push updates to your phone... they do definitely have ways to do this though.

    Thanks for all the help.

    if you are not on vzw you may try doing *22801 if that doesnt work *22802 and so on and so on until you get one that works...it works more often than not, that some where between *22801 and *22809 you find one you can even try *22800
